Metal I.D. Tag

Product Safety Label Caldwell’s Standard Quality Assurance program follows specific design criteria as required by ASME. If you would like your lifter proof tested and a test certificate issued, please specify at the time of order (there is a nominal charge).
Industry Standards Lifting devices are those helpful pieces of equipment that provide a connection point between the crane and the load being lifted. The American Society of Mechanical Engineers (ASME) has developed standards that apply specifically to these types of devices. ASME B30.20 provides detailed information on the classifications, marking, construction, installation, inspection, testing, maintenance and operation of below the hook lifting devices. ASME BTH-1 provides detailed information on the design criteria of below the hook lifting devices. ASME B30.9 provides detailed information on the fabrication, markings, usage, inspection and maintenance of lifting slings. These standards serve as a guide to government authorities, manufacturers, purchasers and users of lifting devices. For a summary of these standards, please visit our web site at www.caldwellinc.com/standards.

All capacities are based on lifting clean, smooth, flat low-carbon steel plate with the full area of the magnet’s lifting surface in contact with the load. Derating is required for plates or other loads with rust or scale. Do not use on material thinner than 1/4". Note: When lifting 4' x 8' sheets or any sheets over 4' x 8', use 2 or more lifts on a spreader bar to prevent sheet flexing, sagging, or peel-off. Material less than 3/8" thick is susceptible to magnet bleed through, resulting in two sheets lifted at once.

Assembly Information
The Caldwell Model BEF is designed to use schedule 40 ERW pipe as the central structural element between the end fittings. This structural material is readily available at most steel service centers. The Caldwell Model BEF-2 1/2 requires a 2-1/2" nominal size, the Model BEF-5 requires a 5" nominal size, and the BEF-8 requires an 8" nominal size schedule 40 ERW pipe. Other requirements are: • The length of pipe used for this central element must be straight within 1/4" end to end. • The pipe should have the ends cleanly cut square with its centerline. • The schedule 40 ERW pipe should not have any weld joint irregularities. • Each end of the schedule 40 ERW pipe must have the correct diameter holes drilled through both walls and both ends must be in line. • The schedule 40 ERW pipe used in this application does not need to pass any pressure testing. The retaining bolts used to secure the Caldwell Model BEF 2-1/2 and 5 to the schedule 40 ERW pipe must be a Grade 5 Hex Head Cap Screw 5/8-11 with minimum length of 4-1/2" and 8" respectively. The bolt for the BEF-8 is a Grade 5 Hex Head Cap Screw 1-8 with a minimum length of 11-1/2". NOTE: Complete assembly instructions are provided with each set of end fittings.

Care & Use
Rig-Master® Rigging Attachments have been designed for specific tasks to withstand the particular forces imposed. A summary of guidelines for installation, inspection, maintenance, repair, safe operation, and operator training of these attachments follow:
INSTALLATION Below/Hook Lifters shall be assembled and installed in accordance with the manufacturer’s instructions, unless other specific arrangements have been approved in writing by manufacturer. Check for specific maintenance and installation procedures in accordance with manufacturer’s instructions. OPERATOR TRAINING Lifters shall be operated in accordance with manufacturer’s operating instructions, and by personnel who have received instructions described in the “Operating Practices” section of these guidelines. Training shall also include instruction regarding: 1. Details of the lifting cycle. 2. Application of the lifter to the load including (according to the manufacturer’s instructions) adjustments to the lifter, if any, to adapt it to various sizes and kinds of loads. 3. Instruction in any special operations or precautions that may be required. 4. Recognition of proper load configuration. For example, preferred operation requires an orderly pattern of stacking. 5. Before assuming responsibility for using the lifter, an operator shall demonstrate his understanding of the lifting procedure to the instructor. The instructor should record, for your personnel evaluation, notes of operator’s demonstrated ability. INSPECTION The lifter shall be visually inspected by or under the direction of an appointed person on a daily or weekly schedule depending on the nature of the lifter and the severity of the service. Details to look for include but are not limited to: 1. Structural deformation. 2. Cracks in the structural frame, welds, hoist hook attachment points, mechanically operating parts, any attached slings, clevises and hooks. 3. Malfunctions during operation of a mechanically operating lifter. 4. Loose covers, fasteners and stops. 5. Faulty operation of automatic hold and release mechanisms. 6. Wear of hoist hooking points, load supporting clevises, pins, slings, linkages and mechanical parts. 7. Missing nameplates and markings. Contact Caldwell for replacements. MAINTENANCE AND REPAIRS 1. A preventive maintenance program should be established for each lifter by a qualified person based on recommendations made by its manufacturer. 2. A qualified person should have responsibility for repairs. Dated records and details of repairs and parts replacement should be carefully maintained by a qualified person, and copies kept in your possession. 3. Replacement parts shall be at least equivalent to the original manufacturer’s specifications. 4. Keep products clean of dirt and debris to ensure proper and safe operation. 5. Oil pins and moving parts as required. OPERATING PRACTICES DO’S 1. The operator shall have received, read and understood the manufacturer’s operating instructions. 2. The operator shall watch carefully that the lifter is performing properly during the lifting procedure. 3. The operator shall be familiar with the standard crane directing hand signals. 4. The operator shall respond to signals from an appointed person only. However, stop signals from anyone shall be obeyed. 5. The operator shall notify a designated person when he considers a load to be unsafe. 6. The operator shall observe the lifter before using. A defect observed shall be examined by a qualified person to determine if it is a hazard. DON’TS 1. The operator shall not operate a malfunctioning lifter or one with an “out of service” tag attached. 2. The operator shall not use the lifter for any purpose(s) other than those designated by the manufacturer’s operating instructions. 3. The operator shall not use a lifter when the capacity, weight or safety markings are missing or are no longer legible. 4. No one shall make alterations or modifications to lifters without consulting the manufacturer. 5. No one shall obscure or paint over the manufacturer’s capacity, weight, or safety markings. 6. Loads shall not be lifted higher than necessary or be left suspended unattended. 7. The lifter shall not lift a load that is not properly balanced for safe lifting. HANDLING THE LOAD 1. The lifter shall not be loaded in excess of its rated load. 2. The combined weight of the lifter and load shall not exceed the rated load of the crane or hoist. 3. The lifter shall be applied to the load in accordance with the manufacturer’s recommended operating procedure. 4. Lifter ropes and chains shall not be kinked, and multiple part lines shall not be twisted about each other. 5. The lifter shall not touch obstructions during load movement. 6. The lifter shall not be loaded with loose material that might fall during movement. 7. The operator or other personnel shall not place themselves or any part of their bodies beneath suspended loads. 8. The load or lifter shall not be slid on the floor or other surface. 9. The lifter shall not be used for loads for which it is not designed. 10. If suspended loads are moved manually, they shall be pushed, not pulled. 11. A preliminary lift of a few inches shall be made to establish that the load is stable. 12. All loads shall be accelerated and decelerated smoothly.

Modifications to your lifting equipment without prior approval from The Caldwell Group, Inc. will void your warranty. Refer to ASME B30.20 regarding the liability of repaired or modified lifters.
